The Bally Blonde Canvas Print is clearly a rather simple yet elegant piece. Through severe contrast it stands out against warm and neutral colours with its almost harsh yet lax demeanour. It is a fantastic piece for contrast not only primarily with the colour wheel, but with character. This composition of wall art décor and the interior design along with the rocks displays an almost beach-like atmosphere, ideal for someone who wishes to live by the sea whilst maintaining a rather chic style within their home. However, this does not go without saying that any modern home looking for a slice of vintage would be greatly complimented by this piece.

Decorating your home with white interiors is timeless, crisp and fresh and can brighten up any room. An all white scheme looks inviting, effortless and gives the illusion of a larger space and highlights everything around it. White is a very versatile colour and is a great starting point as it can suit any taste or style, from modern to traditional and anything in between. We’ve put together a few pointers to get you started on the white trend.
Picking the right white
White serves as a canvas for anything but white also has a lot of varying shades with different undertones. If you want a crisp modern look, bright whites give the space extra sharpness and adding furnishings with simple lines, smooth surface and metallic’s will tie this look together. Warm whites soften areas and add a sense of comfort and romance and work well with plenty of detail such as lace and marble.White can also be paired with pastels for a soft feminine feel or go for shiny fabrics to add glamour and elegance to a room. Shiny apricot, peach or creams are great combinations.
To avoid a bland all white colour scheme, adding different textures is vital. Add one colour to a white palette, a dark accent creates a clean and sophisticated look and creates depth. Warm whites work best with cool tones such as chalk grey and ice tones. Choosing textured furnishings and objects in different tones is also key to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Paint wooden floorboards in a cold white or add a white wash to reveal glimpses of the timber tones and texture and create a beautiful rustic feel to your home.
Furnishings and decorative objects play a huge role, especially with an all white scheme as everything stands out, so make sure its worth looking at. Go for pieces that are striking and different to add impact and a wow factor to your living space. One of the great advantages of white is that you can constantly create new looks without updating the whole room. Accessorise with printed throw pillows and play with different surfaces to create an interested and detailed interior. Anytime you feel that the room needs a makeover, add bold accents or different patterns.
